In today’s junk mail:
You may be surprised to receive this letter from unknown person, being that you have not see me before. In a brief introduction, I am Mrs. Rose Williams from Sierra Leone in West Africa, I am a devoted christian living in Abidjan Ivory coast.
My dear, I inherited the sum of $820,000.00 (Eight hundred and Twenty thousand Us dollars) from my late husband who died in a motor accident on the 15 of January, this year 2006 on his way coming back from his office. My dear, I and my late husband married for a long? time without a child and due to my present situation of health which my doctor has declared that I will not spend long on earth, that is why I contact you, so that you will handle this money into a good business investment for the future benefit of our fellow brethren that are suffering financially at their homes inn your country. Understand that my contacting you is not by my power, rather a divine direction from God and I know that you will not betray his trust in you.
I will be looking forward to hear urgently back from you after reading from your sister so that I will confirm whether you are ready to handle this work our living Almighty has chosen you to do for his obediently children.
Yours beloved sister in Christ,
The first time i ever set eyes on a mail like this – it was from someone going to be imprisoned for treason (or was it the son of someone hung for treason) in Nigeria. I saw one from Ghana and South Africa – now it is Sierra Leone.
Is there anyone who is on the web, who still gets taken in by this?
